Even with the star power of Steven Spielberg, Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks, as well as a storyline that is an implicit rebuke of President Donald Trump, this drama was shut out at the Golden Globes (0 for 6) and the Critics' Choice (0 for 8) awards. AP is the largest and most trusted source of independent news and information. But all too few.
Munn, who hosted the awards show, and Niecy Nash hoisted glasses of champagne onstage to "give a toast to the good men in Hollywood". "She takes action when everyone around her is idle", she said.
Some stars found a better use for their limited time, forwarding the message of the #TimesUp movement. The actress opened the show with an eccentric, hysterical rap with the help of SNL's Jay Pharoah, but of course, it wouldn't have been the start of an awards show without some awkwardness. In 2017, there could be no finer recipient than Wonder Woman herself, Gal Gadot.
Here are our favorite looks of the night. In doing so, she sets a positive example for humanity", Gadot said, adding that the character "struggles with her own love and hopes.
She told the Daily Mail: "Hosting an awards show pales in comparison to the legal and illegal threats that I've had to (face) and that so many other women who have spoken out have had to go through. I'd like to raise a glass to that studio executive who had me meet him in the studio conference room, instead of his actual hotel room".
"Here's to the male casting directors who didn't ever say anything derogatory to me in an audition", Nash said.
Munn had to cut her off at this point.
Munn then quipped: "Actually, sorry, sorry, they really didn't say much, there". Following the rap, Olivia had a amusing bit where she asked Elisabeth Moss to sign her Handmaid's Tale bonnet, so she made up for her awkward intro.
Kumail Nanjiani also used his win for the film Big Sick to highlight the issue.
Allegations of sexual misconduct involving the 39-year-old emerged in force on Twitter on Sunday night during the Golden Globes, where Franco won best actor, musical or comedy for his role as Tommy Wiseau.
"We're very happy that our movie's coming out in a year when Hollywood's having a lot of hard conversations with itself and we're amplifying voices that have been silenced for too long". "And in some dark times right now, it's nice to be a part of something that reminds us that we're all in this thing called life together".
